China started to soften its positions on Iran sanction and appreciation of yuan. it agreed to be involved in the UN resolution about Iran nuclear issue and has revalued RMB a little bit. China has compromised somewhat to the US, then what will America do? Is Obama's promise to further develop a positive relationship with China believable? At least until now I don't see any thing it has done to restore China-US relation.

AP: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that China agrees Iran must not become a nuclear weapons power and that the fellow Security Council member will play a role in forging sanctions against the Islamic republic at the United Nations.

In the Canadian capital for a meeting of top diplomats from the Group of Eight leading industrialized democracies, Clinton said that despite China's general opposition to international sanctions, it will contribute to the process at the U.N. Security Council.

The U.S. is leading the charge to penalize Iran for refusing to prove that its nuclear ambitions are peaceful. China is a permanent member of the Security Council and can block new sanctions with a veto, so its support for sanctions will be crucial.

"China is part of the consultative group that has been unified all along the way, which has made it very clear that a nuclear-armed Iran is not acceptable to the international community," Clinton said in an interview with Canadian television.

"I think as the weeks go forward and we begin the hard work of trying to come up with a Security Council resolution, China will be involved, they will be making their suggestions," she said. ... /cn_us_iran_china_3
